[COMMENTARY] Unarmed MTG Challenges AOC to a Battle of Wits
Marjorie Taylor Greene literally doesn’t have anything to do when she gets to her office at the Capitol every day. Ever since losing her Committee assignments, her “workday” consists of nothing except figuring out new ways to get views on Twitter. One of the MAGA Mean Girls, Greene knows all too well that negative attention is better than no attention, and what better way to stir things up than by calling out one of the right’s favorite targets, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC has been a lightning rod for MAGA ever since she emerged from obscurity rocking a serious red lip along with her street-savvy.
Now MTG wants to take on AOC in a debate. About the Green New Deal. No, really.
Greene wrote a thread on Twitter calling out Ocasio-Cortez, citing her years in construction as enough experience to talk about climate action, which she doesn’t believe in because of the Jewish Space Lasers.
Here’s the QIdiocy:
.@AOC I’d like to challenge you to a debate on the Green New Deal economic policy.
Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I’m sure you are more than qualified.

Of course, Greene is ill-equipped to take on AOC. Greene believes lizard people kidnapped and killed Tom Hanks and one of them is wearing his skin while drinking the blood of babies. Also, she’d rather hang out with her guns while badly doing CrossFit while pretending she had nothing to do with the January 6th insurrection.
MTG debating AOC is like LeBron James playing one-on-one with Chris Christie.

Twitter seems to be somewhat split on this new attention-seeking tactic, which AOC hadn’t responded to at press time. Some are begging for it to happen so they can simply enjoy the public humiliation Greene would face if AOC agreed to a debate. Others are virtually rolling their eyes at yet another stunt from “Marjorie Manson”.
AOC would easily thrash Marjorie Greene in a debate over anything, especially the Green New Deal.
Instead, I'd like to challenge MTG to just STFU already.

Dear Lorb Baby Jeebus, please let MTG debate AOC. 🙏🏼

There’s a great case to be made for AOC to ignore all of Marjorie Taylor “I Won’t Be Ignored” Greene’s tweets.
I don't think @AOC should give QAnon lunatic Marjorie Taylor Greene a platform to spew her conspiracy theories.
Sane Americans know that climate change is a threat to Earth and we need to do something about it. Take a seat MTG.https://t.co/3BZ89R51Y6

But then there’s a good case for her to maybe show up:
Marjorie Taylor Greene challenged Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to debate about the Green New Deal.
I think AOC should challenge MTG to a debate about the pros & cons of cheating on your husband of 25 years with a polyamorous tantric sex guru & other randos at the gym. pic.twitter.com/NFAYk3T9eS

Those backing Greene would probably use a no-show as “proof” that “the left” can’t back up their support of the Green New Deal, because that’s how dumb bullies roll.
This is a lose-lose situation for AOC. She declines, she looks scared. She accepts, you know damn well this isn’t a debate, it’s just gonna be MTG shouting Q garbage and pretending that she “owned” AOC regardless of what actually happens.

The most likely conclusion to this new stunt will be when Ocasio-Cortez tweets something that effectively ends the whole thing. For now, there is always the glory of Twitter trolling Greene.
QIdiot, please. You don't respond to the people who tweet you, so you're in no position to demand anything of an actual politician who's busy doing her job because she still has her Committee assignments #ExpelGreene #MarjorieManson https://t.co/o54AWzyNoE
